This Grammar.com article is about seen, scene — enjoy your reading!

Seen is the past participle of see. Note that it is not the simple past tense of see. I saw is often replaced by I seen in some regions of the country, but that usage is never correct.

A scene might be a segment of a play or movie, the setting of an activity or story, or a view or landscape.

Example: They were seen backstage just before they were due to enter the final scene of the play.
